A dozen Chinese gold miners trapped thousands of feet underground for over a week have sent up an urgent note saying that four are injured and that the others were in dire shape, according to reports.
“We are in urgent need of medicine, painkillers, medical tape, external anti-inflammatory drugs, and three people have high blood pressure,” the note reads, Agence France-Presse reported.
It was unknown if 10 other miners were still alive, according to the Xinhua Nerws Agency.
Twenty-two workers were trapped about 2,000 feet below the surface after a blast eight days ago near the city of Qixia in eastern Shandong province.
After days without any signs of life, rescuers heard knocks Sunday afternoon as they drilled through the mine’s shaft.
“We wish the rescuers won’t stop so that we can still have hope. Thank you,” read the crumpled, water-stained note written in pencil.
The writer asked rescuers to send down medication from his car, and warned that there was a large amount of water where the miners are trapped.
Managers of the operation were detained after they failed to report the accident for more than a day.

So glad that rescuers are trying. God help them.
“failed to report the accident for more than a day”
I don’t think their future is very bright.
I have worked underground. I hope these men are rescued.
In response to note, Commi government sends back social credit scores.
I had not heard about this before. Has it been in the news? Prayers for the safe recovery of these miners.
These miners have a bond with other working people that transcends all politics.

Not downplaying the severity of this at all, but since when does 2,000 feet = “thousands of feet”?
Send them down a box of face masks for PPE and call it good.
More than one is plural and gets an “s”.
“Thank you for your sacrifice to the Glorious Party comrades. You may rest easy knowing your revolutionary acts are appreciated by Chairman Xi”
“Commi government sends back social credit scores.”
Downgraded for complaining and making unreasonable demands.
Typical of a no-trust, eff you society.
